Land Acknowledgement

Bright Lights for Africa acknowledges that recognizing the land stands as a longstanding tradition among Indigenous communities when receiving visitors onto their territory and into their dwellings. Fostering respectful connections, acknowledging the land emerges as a crucial element in the process of reconciliation. This practice pays homage to the genuine history of North America, its original inhabitants, and narrates the tale of the formation of this nation—a narrative that has often been overlooked throughout history.
